2018 Fantasy Outlook
Selected in the 10th round of the 2012 draft, Sewald successfully hurled his way through the lower levels of the minor leagues over the past several years, posting sub-2.00 ERAs in both Single-A and Double-A ball. The 6-foot-3 righty -- whose fastball sits in the low 90s -- opened the 2017 campaign with Triple-A Las Vegas but quickly received a big-league promotion one week into the season. The 27-year-old went on to log 65.1 innings of bullpen work, the most among any Mets reliever. He closed the year with a 4.55 ERA and 69:21 K:BB while being primarily utilized in a middle-relief role. He’ll be a key component in the Mets’ bullpen again in 2018 but doesn’t figure to move the needle much in the fantasy realm, as he’s unlikely to see many as many hold opportunities following the team’s offseason acquisition of Anthony Swarzak.

Picks up first save
PNew York Mets
August 22, 2018
Sewald recorded the final two outs of the ninth inning Wednesday, one via strikeout, to pick up his first career save in a 5-3 win over the Giants.
ANALYSIS
The Mets' closer situation remains a mess, as four different pitchers (Sewald, Robert Gsellman, Seth Lugo and Jerry Blevins) have notched the team's last four saves. Sewald's 4.68 ERA and 1.4 HR/9 would make him a volatile ninth-inning option even if the team did commit to him in the role, but given the competition and the circumstances, Wednesday's save chance could easily end up being his last of the year despite the successful conversion.
